Re: Merry XMAS

Whoa, didn't need that. Hilarious, I think. Hope you don't have any coworkers, at least not ones who telemark.

Re: Forward Lean: Scarpa TX Comp vs. T1?

Aimlessly wasting time (or purposefully wasting time), I looked up the specs for several of the boots in the chart above and who ever put that chart together (someone at Scapra I presume) didn't do a very good job. If you check out the specs of the individual boots on Scarpa's website, you'll find s...

Re: Forward Lean: Scarpa TX Comp vs. T1?

Don't think you'll get many responses re Tx Comps here, though there are definitely a few NTN users here. I don't know, sorry dude. I agree about the forward lean of the T1s and think you'd find the T2 Ecos or T2Xs (if you can find them) to be way better. Same for BD's 3 buckle boots (Seekers, which...

Re: Good telemark ski and binding for beginner?

Going to the resort is a great way to learn how to make telemark turns. As with any sport, the more you do it, the better you get. The gear I'd recommend would depend on the terrain you want to ski. If you want to ski 30 degree and steeper slopes, you'd want different gear than if you want to tour t...

Good info. TomH.

I would happily pay $25 for another pair of heels rather than moving those things back and forth.

Re: 22 Designs first NTN binding - Outlaw

Ouch. Well, the comparison was to NTN Freerides, and the Outlaws are price comparable, if not cheaper. Skiing is not a cheap sport, period. NTN bindings are no doubt on the upper end of the specturm. Voile Hardwire is on the lower end, but it ain't cheap. NNN-BC, Alpina boots, Fischer skis -- it ain...

A strike against 3 pins in this match up -- that cannot be done without swapping the 3 pin bindings on that ski as there is a left and a right binding.

Re: 22 Designs first NTN binding - Outlaw

Sounds like you're committed to NTN, and if that's the case, go with the Outlaw. Rotte's NTN bindings either break a lot (Freeride) or spontaneously pop into tour mode (Freedom): http://www.backcountrytalk.earnyourturns.com/vb/showthread.php?1313-NTN-Freedom-binding-popping-into-tour-mode-while-turn...

Re: Voile Hardwire 3-Pin for touring/resort ?

I think this discussion shows that, 90% of the equation depends on the skier and not the skis, and you cannot convince the other of the folly of his views.
